The institution said that it has mounted 24-hour security surveillance within the campus and other sensitive positions to check kidnapping and other security challenges.

 

The Pro-Chancellor and Chairman Governing Council of UNIABUJA, Modibbo Mohammed said this on Saturday during a retreat organized for the university’s principal officers, dean’s, directors and trade unions with the theme: “Navigating myriad of challenges in managing Universities in today’s world.”

 Mohammed said, “We have now mounted 24 hours security patrol in the University, not only within the campus and residential areas but within perimeters of the University.

 “We have also employed additional hunters and vigilantes to patrol in areas that are not fenced because it is a very vast land.”

 He said the institution has also engaged the services of hunters and vigilantes to boost its security following a recent incident of abduction of some staff and family members by bandits.

 Speaking on sexual harassment in the university system, Modibbo said that those found culpable would henceforth be sanctions accordingly.

 According to him, over 10 cases of such had been transferred to the University’s disciplinary committee, adding that persons found guilty would be brought to book.
